Im new here but lets give this a try. I found out i had non small cell lung cancer stage 3 in May of this year. I went through the chemo and radiation treatments. i was very sick ended up spending 42 nights in the hospital from May till October. In October I had my last PET scan done and was found to have no active cancer cells and the spot on my lung was almost gone and the 6x6 tumor in the center of my chest was now something like 1x4. I am thankful that the scan showed no active cancer cells but I have worried everyday that the cancer is still there. like it is playing another one of its awful tricks on me. also, I have had so much pain throughout this process when does that end? now my joints all hurt, my chest hurts and its still some what hard to swallow and my lung still has sharp pains that run through it form time to time. my hips hurt the most the past few days, it is even hard to walk from the pain. I am just concerned with the pain. could it be the cancer has spread or is this just another side effect from the treatments?
